One day after the U.S. ordered missiles to strike a Syrian airbase, which signaled an abrupt change in foreign policy in the conflict-ridden country, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer requested that all cameras be turned off during Friday's press briefing.
Legacy media organizations questioned the bizarre request, while others took noticed of a plastic container of cheeseballs, which stood in Spicer's absence.
"Off, off, everything's off," Spicer said, without giving explanation for the media blackout.
I just turned on CNN. Sean Spicer was speaking, but the camera was on a tub of cheeseballs.— Jessie Lahr (@JessieLahrr) April 7, 2017
A new SNL skit?
Sean Spicer does not want to be on camera during press briefing so camera zooms in on giant jar of cheesy poofs. I have so many questions.— dutchbint (@dutchbint) April 7, 2017
